India's Steel Industries Kerala (SILK) has been ordered to stop shipbreaking at its Azhikkal yard due to the lack of a licence.

The Express News Service reported the district collector said SILK could not resume demolition until a permit had been acquired.

The yard had obtained a licence that only allowed equipment installation, according to collector P Bala Kiran.

SILK also builds small vessels and barges in Kerala.
